Erratic HDD speeds, SMART error. Lemonade anyone?
To make a long story short, I was being spammed by BSODS and lockups on my primary HDD, and in the end I decided to back it up to my external and retreat to my backup drive. FYI, the BSOD's were 'Kernal-power' errors. I also noticed a massive slow down.
In the end I cloned my back up HDD to my primary HDD, and have run some HDTunes tests on the primary HDD since.
Although no errors in windows yet, the HDtune graph is very erratic, the timeline trail nosedives all over the place. My lowest read speed is about 19/ms whereas my highest is 147mbs. Also SMART is reporting C7 count 1 (Ultra DMA CRC error) In comparison, on my back up hdd the timeline trail is very smooth starting from the start to the end of the drive.
Is the ship sinking?
